My foray into Crossfit isn’t the typical “love at first sight story” that most trainers will tell you about. At first I really didn’t like Crossfit AT ALL. Mostly because the workouts were much harder than what I was used to but in the beginning I just didn’t understand it.

I began my fitness journey as a freshman in high school. Good ol Body Development class. I was always an avid weight lifter, I fell in and out though during high school. After I had graduated I began making it a full part of my life. Lots of isolation weight lifting and some power lifting were my go to’s. After some time though, and being bored, I began incorporating a lot of cardio type workouts in with my training. Soon after that I was introduced to Crossfit. They were easily some of the most difficult workouts I had done in my life! It took some time and a whole lot of dedication but I began to really appreciate this style of working out. The constantly changing nature and intensity became something that I really looked forward to in my workouts and now definitely wouldn’t have it any other way.

I enjoy training people with Crossfit because it is something new everyday. Watching people learn and grow with something like this is very rewarding in itself. When people hit PR’s and watching as everyone gets stronger and better is just a great thing to be part of.



Being a coach allows me to share my passion about CrossFit!! We work side by side and all feel successful in some way, because we are in this together. As a coach, I want each person to feel and see changes that make them proud of themselves, every day.
